This Karate Klub Compilation Launch is Gonna Totally Rock

This week’s show is all about the Karate Klub’s 10 Anniversary Compilation Record and it’s launch tomorrow (14th July, 2018) in Dalymount.  The Karate Klub has been at the heart of the Dublin punk community since 2008 and has spawned countless great bands, great sessions and sore heads.  To celebrate the occasion, I am joined by John 6 of any number of bands that have practiced in the space and who has been with it since the very beginning.  Tune in for the tunes, stay for the laughs.  Tunes brought to you tonight from:



Born Against

The Adolescents

Agent Orange

Frozen Teens

Coupe Gorge

The Freebooters

Runnin Riot

The Hypocrites

Minor Threat


The Whole Sick

Ennio Morricone

Black Sabbath


Judas Priest

Thin Lizzy


Lunatic and RiRa

Mf Doom and DJ Muggs

Ol Dirty Bastard

Realistic Train


Wizards of Firetop Mountain


Turn it up, rock out.  If you miss the gig you can pick up the album here.

    This Show Totally Rocks Numero 33 – Gigs what I missed and gigs what I may miss in the future

    This Show totally Rocks 33 9th May

    Oh man, this week I pulled out all the stops, and by stops I mean cans.  Things kick off with a bit of Thee Oh Sees who I missed in Whelans last week (I believe they were amazerbeams, but I was having pints in the sun so I’m not kicking myself too hard), then on to The Men (who I also missed last year, for undoubtedly less salubrious reasons), San Diego’s Spider Fever, a new find from  Obits (thanks to Spotify), The Big Boys, Dan Sartain (another missed gig that was supposed to be great), The Spaceshits (another recent spotify find), The Dead Boys and then a bit of mid-seventies Detroit’s favourite sons  Death.  The second half of the show starts with some Wigging out with a capital Wig.  Comets on Fire, Fuzz, Blue Cheer and The Datsuns all kicking out the serious jams before local up and comers  The Run Ons bring the focus back to this Saturday’s line-ups of bands and gigs in Dublin.  Following the suit of just about every other vaguely punk DJ in Ireland this week  Subhumans and Conflict get a bit of air time ahead of their gig in the Button Factory.  Rounding things off are a bit of  Misfits and Bad Religion, before finishing with a bit The Specials who played two nights in Dublin this week and are always very good.  Alright, that’s your lot.  Stick it on, play it loud!!!
